--- Quote from: steve owen on February 18, 2010, 07:19:19 PM ---I am tempted to widen the discussion with a proposition about feeding the worlds's hungry with Genetically Modified Wheat but maybe this audience is a bit too conservative for such revolutionary ideas.

Bit of an unnecessarily prickly comment there, Steve, assuming that the rest of us forumists have conservative, closed minds, surely?

GM foods are a complex issue. It's not just about feeding the world's hungry kids. If only it was. Unfortunately it's very much about huge "agribusinesses" wanting to dominate world markets with their products at the expense of traditional local crops and local farmers, which may end up drastically reducing the biodiversity of crops worldwide, leading to increasing monocultures of just a few genetically identical crops, putting the world at increased risk of famine as such a situation is much more prone to lead to disasterous worldwide crop failures than having many, many genetically diverse food crops. And that's just one of the problems thrown up by GM.
